Storyline

When you get into trouble there's only one person to call, Olivia Pope. Olivia is a professional 'fixer' who makes problems go away before anyone even knows they exist. For the moneyed, the powerful and even the President, Olivia is a legend in her field. Her spectacular success is mostly due to her unbreakable rule of always trust your gut. No matter how careful you are, when you do damage control for a living, you're bound to cause some damage to your own life. She and her crew eat, sleep, live and breathe crisis. Each week, as the team races against the clock to defuse intriguing new problems before they become full-blown disasters, they also have to deal with their own personal issues. They may call themselves 'gladiators in suits', but little by little, Olivia and her crew begin to reveal the chinks in their armor. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The character Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and her "fixer" firm are modeled on the real-life self-dubbed "crisis management expert" Judy Smith. As an independent fixer, Smith has helped repair or restore the reputations of such scandal-mired celebrities as Monica Lewinsky, Kanye West, Gen. David Petraeus, Michael Vick, and Rob Lowe, but before that, she worked in the G. H. W. Bush administration's White House as Deputy Press Secretary and played a large role in countering Anita Hill's claims of sexual harassment against Clarence Thomas in the media. In 2016, Scandal star Kerry Washington played Anita Hill in the TV movie Confirmation, and Judy Smith was depicted in that movie by actress Kristen Ariza. See more »

Even dumb and dumber is smarter than this
26 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed first 2 seasons, but has sunk faster than the Titanic. Over time you realize everyone acts the same. Every actor has the same cadence when they talk. Olivia can't act, it's just the same expression over and over and over and over... By this last season , you realize it's the most idiotic thing you've ever watched EVER. It's hilariously stupid, yet the show still takes itself seriously... It's like Adam Sandler thinking 1 of his movies will win an Oscar. I'm not surprised by any twist and turn because it's so stupid - it's just 1 eye roll after another. I feel like the type of show it was changed after the first 2 years. Anyways, I want my life back
